Hands-Free Solutions for Smart Factories

Enable Line Workers with Secure Hands-Free Collaboration

Smart factories focus on accelerating the assembly of products from supplier to shipping, reducing errors and ramping up production to meet growing global demand. Digital transformation through IoT, AI and Connected Workers will enable your workforce to work safely and effectively, shoulder-to-shoulder with collaborative robots, and deliver tangible return-on-investment.

Digital Transformation in Manufacturing


When production stops due to machine failure, on-site technicians need assistance immediately to resume production. However, the expert for this machine may be located in a different city, state, or country.


Through peer-to-peer video collaboration on the HMT-1, experts can provide assistance by telestrating remotely to pin-point the exact issue – even in high-noise environments. Hands-free communication permits technicians the use of tools to operate machines.

Secure Documents


Workers do not have the latest knowledge for manufacturing operations, including machine installation, inspection, and maintenance procedures. Paper copies are kept in binders adjacent to the manufacturing lines for reference by operators, but these are cumbersome and pose a security risk.


Document navigator and single sign-on (SSO) allows documents to be securely synced to HMT devices. Operators simply scan a QR code on a machine and are brought directly to the correct document to address their issue. Files are then remotely wiped when security credentials are revoked.

Downtime Avoidance


In case of a pipeline failure, for example, natural gas companies must contact the site maintenance unit to respond immediately. Failure to solve the issue quickly will have a heavy impact on daily work and have potential security risks.


Through hands-free audio and video, the dispatching center can access real-time information for scientific decision-making and guide the technicians through emergency repairs accordingly. RealWear has seen on average a 29% reduction of downtime after implementation of HMTs.
